Tai chi Top 50
The superb and photogenic arete. It is probably 6c+ if you climb direct past the second bolt although most folks go right here.

Right of the arete, easy rock leads to a bulge which is passed leftwards with neat delicate moves. Easier cracks are above.

Hola Olta
The gradually-steepening slab and wall that crowns it gives a good but sharp pitch.

A good pitch with awkward moves early on - use the crack to the right if needed. There is more-pleasant climbing above.

The best of the easier stuff here. Start at the name and follow spaced bolts up the steep slab. High first clip.

The bulging crack is tricky early on, then it eases. Again the bolts are a bit spaced.

Touch Me Softly
The corner is awkward to enter and the hand-crack at mid-height is fun. Finish up the head-wall or sneak right.
